Motor Maxi




Jacket (Kohls); Dress (Calvin Klein find at Marshalls);
Shoes (Jessica Simpson find at Marshalls); Earrings (Nordstrom); Necklace (Gift)
Ryan Seidel Photography

Adding a tough jacket to this summer maxi dress gives it a new and edgy look for fall. And I'm wearing my new favorite necklace... a gift from my boyfriend who knows I love turtles :)   And so a Motor Maxi is what happens when you combine a motorcycle jacket with a maxi dress.  And carrying Rex like a baby is what happens when he doesn't listen (it's a very common look for us).

I am so jealous that you can still wear a maxi dress! It is like late nov in Chicago, my heat is on, and I can't leave the house without a coat!

You look stunning in this dress! I've been trying to think of ways to transition my maxi dresses to chilly Minnesota weather and this is the way to do it! Also, your puppy is adorable. So glad he made the post. :)

I love this look my dear! Gorgeous maxi dress, love the colours and love how you styled the leather jacket with it, unexpected and edgy. Adore your necklace, such a sweet gift :)

Take care,

tiny dancer said...

Such an incredible dress - those colors are gorgeous. And I really like how you paired it with the moto jacket, unexpected :) Oh my, Rex is killing me with cuteness. I have to carry my Sophie like that all the time, but it's because she's such a winer <3 oh puppies

You are so gorgeous. I love this outfit, and I love your hair, too! I think if I had a puppy as cute as that, I wouldn't be able to put him down!! ;-)

Coffee and Cardigans said...

This is such a fun contrast! The leather jacket is edgy, but that gorgeous maxi is feminine and elegant. Also a great way to take a maxi skirt from summer to fall.

I honestly sometimes find the moto jacket + girlie dress combo a little too much for my taste, but I actually really like it together here - I think the darker colors in the dress go well with the jacket and it's not such a crazy contrast. Great look!

Laura Go said...

I love that the motorcycle jacket kind've quiets down that print of the maxi! It's a gorgeous combo.
